Where I stayed
Happy new year!!! Full moon party
We grabbed a table in a restaurant and ordered some food.. I relived my face painter days and painted all of us with some UV paint. But, unfortunately by this point, George had started to get a headache that was slowly turning into a migraine. Our next mission was medicine purchase, I dealt with that while George was sweating and trying not to faint. We made our way onto the beach and got George a coca cola to sip in hope the sugar gave her a boost, we let the others go on as George by this point couldn't really stand for long. We sat in a bar overlooking the beach and I got stuck in to my bucket that I'd bought. I was convinced I got ripped off and there was no alcohol in it but George tells me I was soon very loud and wanted to dance! Luckily the painkillers had sorted George out by about 11.30pm so we enjoyed chatting to lots of people, we even stumbled across another girly couple which was refreshing seeing as we've been hit on left, right and centre for a while now! (Men and one girl for George!)
By the time midnight came we were having a ball and we counted down with the other 50,000 people and watched the fireworks as it struck midnight.
We had a boogy, I had a beer after my bucket (very merry!) and we carried on chatting to various different people we met, English, Canadian, American, South African, Australian..
We managed to get the front seats of a tuk tuk back to the pier, after George gathered herself, and got on board our ferry at 7am back to Koh Samui. What a night, crazy crazy but worth seeing! Happy New Year!! Time to recover!
